Here's one way Lane Kiffin will be different as a head coach than Nick Saban.

Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin will differ from former boss Nick Saban in how he deals with his assistants . Kiffin said he is not big on ' humiliating assistant coaches '. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.

Lane Kiffin spent three years on Nick Saban’s staff as offensive coordinator of the Alabama Crimson Tide. While the new Florida Atlantic Owls head coach obviously learned a thing or two from Saban, Kiffin seems to not agree with his former boss’ habit of “humiliating assistant coaches.”

Kiffin famously and publicly was on the receiving end of several Saban tirades during his tenure with the Tide. And while Kiffin recently avoided criticizing Saban directly for his methods, he made it clear it’s not how he runs a coaching staff.

How proposed NCAA rules would hurt high school coaches and players

  How proposed NCAA rules would hurt high school coaches and players The NCAA has proposed two rules directly relating to high school coaches, including one that governs when they can be hired and to what positions in the college ranks. In football, during a two-year period before a prospective student-athlete's anticipated enrollment and a two-year period after the prospective student-athlete's actual enrollment, an institution shall not employ (or enter into a contract for future employment with) an individual associated with the prospective student-athlete in any athletics department noncoaching staff position or in a strength and conditioning staff position.

There are few more joyous sights in college football than that of former Bama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin getting in an argument (or should we say an ass-chewing) with his old boss, Nick Saban. I'm not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.

“Those things come up, and everybody has different ways of dealing with them,” Kiffin said during a recent appearance on SiriusXM College Sports Nation. “It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody. I write down notes. In the staff meeting, I explain what we want to get done.”

For what it’s worth, Saban doesn’t refer to the dressing-down of his assistants as “humiliating” them. He instead once colorfully called the outbursts “a– chewings,” which is how the Alabama head coach characterized a heated sideline confrontation with Kiffin during an eventual victory over Western Kentucky last season.

Kiffin’s discussion of differing coaching styles interestingly comes on the heels of a former Alabama player admitting the defensive unit routinely and purposely tried to foster situations where Saban would go off on Kiffin during practice.

Could Lane Kiffin 's departure cost Alabama a national title? Quickly. As Lane Kiffin gets another The school has nearly doubled its salary pool for assistant coaches from million to .7 million. If Kiffin wins big , the Kiffin Factor will bring national prominence to an anonymous regional university.

Lane Kiffin begins his second act as a head coach . Is he ready? play. One former assistant coach said Kiffin was at his best with the players. "He just has to be smart. He really probably needs to go somewhere other than the SEC, at least this next job.

Former Crimson Tide defensive lineman and NFL prospect Jonathan Allen said the defense would “try to get Coach Saban mad at [Kiffin] and try to get him yelled at in practice.”

“It was just during (drills),” Allen recalled, via Saturday Down South. “We would just try to blow it up and just destroy it and kill the offense and then you would know Kiffin’s just…gonna get it, after you just blow it up in the backfield. That’s probably the most fun we had at Alabama during practice this year, just watching Coach Saban lay into Kiffin.”

If that was the case, it’s no surprise things ended so badly for the Saban-Kiffin partnership.
